Crown Prince Alexander of Yugoslavia
His Royal Highness Crown Prince Alexander II of Serbia, Aleksandar II Karađorđević (b. July 17, 1945) is the son of Peter II, the last king of Yugoslavia from the Karadjordjevic dynasty. Alexander styles himself Crown Prince of Serbia, but Serbia is today a republic and, although widely respected within the nation, the position Alexander claims currently has no official constitutional status.
Alexander was born at Claridge's Hotel in Brook Street, London, which was declared Yugoslav territory for the event1. The son of King Peter II and Queen Alexandra (born a Princess of Greece and Denmark), he was educated at Gordonstoun, Institute Le Rosey, and Sandhurst.
On July 1, 1972 at the Villamanrique de la Condesa, in Seville, Spain, he was married to Princess Maria da Gloria of Orleans-Braganca. They had three sons, Hereditary Prince Peter (b. 1980) and twins Alexander and Philip , (b. 1982). They were divorced in 1985. Crown Prince Alexander married Katherine Clairy Batis, daughter of Robert Batis and his wife Anna Dosti, legally on September 20, 1985, and religiously the following day, at St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church, Notting Hill, London.
He lives in Beli Dvor.
